Parts of me
Jonathan is so much like Ashley. Their interests are similar; the way they think is amazingly similar--both very practical, solve the problem, see a new way of doing something; both deep sleepers and are slow to wake up; both very witty; both passionate about things they love; both have gorgeous blue eyes; both eat way too much ice cream; and both totally captured my heart.
The similarities between Jonathan and I are not always as obvious. We are both more of a hesitant, timid personality at first; we both enjoy cooking; we both love to read (or be read to); we both treasure relationships and we both get a little impatient.
Every now and then, I see parts of me in Jonathan. The other day we were walking and Jonathan said "Look at that beautiful blue bird Mommy." I loved it! I love that he notices things like that. Jonathan is happiest dirty and loud and outside and going as fast as he can, but there is also a part of him that notices and appreciates the little details God blessed us with like different colors and unique birds or flowers. Then I see my mom in him and I see me and I thank God for the perfect way he made Jonathan.
